Can You Draw The Internet?
I was recently invited through Agency Rush to take part in a contest run by creative advertising agency Saint. The objective was to interpret the internet visually. The question was put to industry creatives as well as 10 year old kids ( who have never lived without the internet ) to see who could come up with the most imaginative image. The response overall was very interesting with many strong images & some of the kids ideas are pretty amazing too actually! These are my three entries but visit the site to see all the submissions & you can of course vote for mine if you like what you see! canyoudrawtheinternet.com

Cycling in London
As part of a campaign to promote cycling, the London Transport Museum recently launched a contest for illustrators to depict cycling in the capital. The competition was fierce with many top illustrators taking part. only 50 of some 1000 entrants were picked for the exhibition.

Live Art
Last week I was invited to do a live painting at the Glug + D&AD student awards after party at the Vibe bar London. I must say a tall order - especially as the board was over 8' & I had about 5 hours to paint! Despite not painting since my art school days years ago I managed to complete the task in had - with the aid of my helpers & a few beers - & the end result wasn't too displeasing!

Check out the East End Arts Club's current pop up exhibition which kicks off with a private view tonight. Offside is an artistic perspective on the World Cup.

The exhibition - which includes loads of great work - runs from 24th - 27th June at Red Gallery, Rivington Street, London. Go on give it a shot!

A while ago I entered a competition on design community site infectious.com to design a new Mimobot (essentially a mix between a USB flash drive and a collectable designer figure). Unfortunately I didn't win the comp - well there was a lot of very strong competition - but I thought I'd share my designs with you anyway!The 3D mockups were lovingly rendered by graphic designer Daniel Vanches who also created a poster of all the best entrys & how they would have looked if produced... it kind of reminds me of the back of an 80s Starwars figure pack! :-)
